Maximizing mold removal – Role of air scrubbers in action

Posted by

Industrial air scrubbing units purpose-designed for hazard remediation feature variable fan speeds to match diverse project requirements. Lower settings maintain energy efficiency for lighter contaminant scenarios. Max settings tackle heavy microbial colonization or construction dust issues with aggressive extraction forces down to 0.3 microns particle sizes. Customizing scrubber velocity prevents overpowering indoor spaces yet ensures sufficient air turnover reaching all corners. Moisture levels and room volumes also help determine optimal circulation rates when positioning multiple units. Adjust as conditions shift between work phases.

Adaptable setup locations for accessibility 

Portability and flexible run lengths allow air scrubbing units access even cramped mold-prone areas that routine HVAC filtering cannot reach. This includes flooded underfloor zones, within wall cavities, and inside attic assemblies beyond static ductwork installation. Spot containments set via specialty exhaust hoses redirect filtered air back to problem zones rather than allowing buildings to dilute concentrations. Funneling particles inward rather than outward limits cross-contamination in other areas while enabling repeat elimination passes through continued recirculation until fully controlled.

Locking mold in place for follow up treatment  

As layers of porous materials get removed during mold cleanouts, newly exposed colony reserves often release spikes of spores behind walls. Portable air scrubber relocation along step-down containment lines immediately collects these shifting loads before spreading across projects. Move the capture source inward in phases while also clearing worker breathing zones. For hidden mold not safely reachable, air scrubbing also helps quarantine and isolate growths until follow-up remediation. Starving spores of outward movement opportunities limits spread while setting up disinfecting fog treatments capable of penetrating colonized cavities. This two-step follow-up maximizes elimination.

Why do passive air movers insufficiently handle mold?

Basic fan circulating or venting methods cannot actively pull surrounding air into containment zones with enough raw force to override gentle convection currents. Some visible surface dust might evacuate, however, most microscopically-sized mold spores continuously replenish through reservoir colony releases behind porous construction surfaces over time. Without sufficient particle velocities driving air into filtration, particles simply rebuild in place. Only professional-tier air scrubbers generate adequate airflow capable of proactively removing ongoing contamination volumes. Their extraction power eliminates hazards at the invisible source.

Additional mold remediation plan essentials

While air scrubbing handles the ambient airborne spore component of mold infestations, additional remediation layers ensure complete removal.

  • Supply cut off – Fix moisture intrusions from leaks, rain seepage, or humidity allowing colonies to initially establish. Reduce levels below 50 percent. 
  • Material removal – Physically eliminate contaminated drywall and insulation providing food sources for amplification. 
  • Cavity treatment – Apply anti-microbial mists to penetrate and coat hidden surfaces.
  • Negative air containment – Seal target zones undergoing remediation to prevent cross-contamination.

Incorporating air scrubbing as part of a comprehensive mold elimination plan stops particulate spread while enabling follow-up treatment. Damagecontrol delivers commercial-grade air scrubbing systems designed to handle even heavy infestations utilizing maximum fan speeds, and follow-up treatment staging for unrivaled remediation capabilities.
